There’s no question at all that we are very much still in the “dry.” That’s the shortened term used here by the locals for the dry season. We haven’t had appreciable rain here on the Placencia Peninsula in Belize for weeks. I’m sure our Cabana guests are mostly happy about it, but dang... we need the moisture. Watering of plants and young trees is a daily chore and our dug well is barely keeping up with it... so costly piped-in water has to be used or risk losing valuable specimens. Since we do all our own landscaping (or 99% anyway), it’s one of those things we just have to keep up. I must say, Miss Karen is much better at doing this than I am. She has more patience for it, or maybe is just able to tolerate the standing in the hot sun, or the early morning or late evening half hour of “no-see-ums” and the occasional mosquito. That’s the coolest time to water, of course. We heard a rumble of thunder last night and saw some lightning off in the distance... but no joy. The Belize National Meteorological Service keeps calling for "isolated showers" in the South, but we aren’t seeing them. The temp now at 7 am is 87 F with 85% humidity and not a lick of breeze. We’ll break 90 F again today and that’s hot for us! The ceiling fans are all running overtime.
